Horses are ordinarily kept and treated as sport and companion animals and are not raised primarily as food-producing animals. They are commonly administered drugs that are so toxic to humans they are strictly prohibited from being used at any time in any animal intended for the human food supply.
It is not credible that horsemeat products derived from Canadian and US horses for human consumption in domestic and international markets can be considered safely free of highly toxic and prohibited substances.
